    I worked at Continental Resources (Oklahoma) full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Stable company with good benefits. Lots of great people.

    Cons

    This company is very slow and stodgy company stuck in the 1970s. The culture is very command and control and the focus is on appearances over reality. If you raise any concerns you will be labeled as a trouble maker. If you are an individual contributor you might have a nice career here. If you are a leader who wants to make a difference, good luck. Many leave when they discover the true culture. Do your... homework and be sure of what you are getting into.

    I worked at Continental Resources (Oklahoma) full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Benefits. Yearly bonus and standard small raise if market conditions are good.

    Cons

    Too much focus on pleasing upper management; they receive beyond noticeable preferential treatment. Middle management is primarily focused on results and gives the illusion employees are cared about or listened to. “Culture” is heavily talked-up but is hardly noticeable. Work-life balance is off as employees fear taking off for even very good reasons to miss work. Nepotism seems to be tolerated quite well here.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on being best for the present day. A company in downtown OKC in 2019 cannot function effectively when it still operates in a nostalgic “Enid days” fashion. Invest heavily in your employees(their happiness, growth, and wages) if you wish to retain them and enjoy success as a company.

    Pros

    Great people, great benefits. The people are very collaborative.

    Cons

    No flex time, telecommuting is frowned on, overall company culture feels like high school (mandatory attendance to company meetings, people really paying attention to the comings and goings of others)

    Advice to Management

    Bring your culture in to the twentieth century.

    Pros

    Continental Resources is a great place to work. The company really takes care of its employees. The pay and benefits are solid. I have the best co-workers who make coming to work everyday enjoyable and fun. Top leaders have built a solid company and have a strong and strategic vision towards the future.

    Cons

    Not a lot of opportunities for flex hours or telecommuting which can be challenging when balancing work and life.

    Advice to Management

    Keep exploring what is important to all of the generations in the workplace: baby boomers, gen x and gen y.

    I worked at Continental Resources (Oklahoma) full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Benefits and usually a yearly bonus

    Cons

    Management, promotions, people all suck. No one wants to hear your voice they just say they do to make you think they're good people.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees. Do what's best for the company not that person. The company needs to change. It's changing regardless therefore so do management and the people. Can't be stuck in 1980. its 2019 baby!
